The public is invited to a fun-filled evening of activities for all ages at the Family Safety Fair, Wednesday May 1 from 4-7pm in Windmill Park in downtown Orange City. Some of the special attractions include: the Fire Safety House; bicycle safety (bring your own helmet; free helmets will be given as needed); Molly the Sioux County Sheriff K-9 Unit doing a vehicle search demonstration; the Sanford/Great Plains Zoo Express; a giant inflatable walk-through Sanford “AmeriHeart”; car seat safety checks; Mercy Air ambulance; “Distracted Driving” simulator (must be at least 14 to “drive” this high-tech simulator); an air bag demonstration; Double V pony rides; “Ask the vet” by Revival Animal Health (bring your leashed pets to the park for a treat!); and more! Plus … visit the tent featuring fun and educational, hands-on activities sponsored by the Governor’s Science Technology Engineering Math (STEM) initiative. And you can feed the family in the park — Don’s Food Center will be selling hamburgers and walking tacos.
The Family Safety Fair is sponsored by Orange City Area Health System, the Orange City Chamber of Commerce, and the Governor’s STEM Advisory Council. For a complete list of attractions and activities, visit ocHealthSystem.org/educational-programs. Rain date is May 8.
